    Pros

    Exertis is such an amazing place to work from the training you are given, to the benefits of working their.

    Cons

    I have been working here for almost 3 years and have had all the help I need, I wouldn't say there is any cons of working for Exertis.

    Advice to Management

    I think the Management work with the employees amazingly, and give everyone the opportunity to learn and grow.

    I worked at Exertis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The incentives are really good from vendors, Dell and Fujitsu will bring in games and hire restaurants for lunch time. The new GSM for general south is good and compassionate, she will help you grow.

    Cons

    It’s not for everyone... it can be quite tiring and draining to be shouted at all the time. Depending on the area you’re working in, can be quite stressful with your team. Some managers should have never been managers and it’s all about company politics! You can solve 100 problems in one day but you are only as good as your number/target.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate some of the managers you have - the number isn’t the only thing you should look at. Most managers have little to no idea how to run a team.

    I worked at Exertis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Commission Structure Incentives Earning potential Great place to learn the trade

    Cons

    Account managers have heavy workload - unsustainable Poor Commercial Support for Sales Strong Clique - hard to succeed unless you're part of it. Too much deadwood - long term staff are complacent and lazy Progression is limited

    Advice to Management

    Promote hungry sales people before they leave. Commercial division needs a shake up, not very proactive. Address clique culture before you lose more key staff

    I worked at Exertis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great spiff week for Christmas, lots of sales activities and incentives for top sales person of the days (only BD team won because they covered most customers selling all products)

    Cons

    No investment in quiet staff members who are making great sales, in order to be noticed you have to be loud and proud. Before the move from London to Essex the redundancy period was very unorganised and quite messy

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your staff, quiet or loud they all make a difference and have ideas of how to make the experience more pleasant for everyone.

    I have been working at Exertis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generous commission if hit target. Newly refurbished and nice offices. Recognised distributor which is forever expanding and acquiring new businesses.

    Cons

    Pre-historic processes and systems. Does not embrace modern day work ethics such as Google, Apple and Amazon. Employees work 9am to 6pm and ad hoc hours, wearing suits and using 10 year old laptops.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees. Embrace modern work ethics and be human about individuals problems. Fairness is a big issue and not every person is treated fairly and its all down to favouritism.

    I worked at Exertis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good incentives day to day. Nice group of people to work with. All better than the business. Good buzzing sales floor

    Cons

    The worst pay in distribution. Terrible commission and management will expect you to work extra hours if you miss target even though wages are shocking. A good place for beginners but terrible business model with minimal margin sales. All predominately based on low margins. No value to add and not aloud to see customers.

    Advice to Management

    Update with the rest of the industry. Just because you turnover 2 billion doesnt make you the king of distribution. Terrible values towards staff
